roundover bit 2"8/5/16
I need to do a 2" radius on a hardwood edge and everywhere I look the largest size is 1.5". Anyone know of a supplier that carries a 2" roundover bit?
I'm pretty certain you could get one made, but there are a couple of reasons I can think of as to why they're not available off the shelf. Safety: 2" radius + 1/2" shank = 4-1/2" diameter of handheld mayhem. Second, a router base with that big of a hole might be hard to find as well. You've probably thought of this already, but a shaper might be a better choice.
Is this just or two edges? At the risk of being blasted....why not just scribe some lines and take it off with a hand plane? Then sand out the facets...I'd bet in 20 min at the bench per piece you could be done, likely less...seems a better option than buying custom shaper knives for a piece or two.
But if you need a lot of pieces, get someone with a molder to make them.
Thanks for the replies. That makes sense that the 2" doesn't exist, it would be too big.
I think I'm just going to run a 45 bevel and feather in what's left with a sander. I would do the scribe idea, but it's already part of an assembly that's too big to run through the saw.
Call Jim or Danny at ctsaw.com , they will take care of it and at a reasonable cost . They have made me some huge router bits for custom wood tops .
The best and safest way would be a shaper. Even though we could make the bit, it is definitely not safe. The kickback could be nasty.
